HELP!

Is it avoidance? Procrastination? I’ve been struggling to write. To move forward with my writing seems to be non-existent. Heck, I’ve been having trouble moving forward with all of my projects. Even this blog post has been hanging around in my head for a month or more now. I can accomplish everything from start to …

Oops!

Even though my last post was about saying good-bye to 2020, I realized there was more about the year that I’d like to put behind me. Most of that post was positive, but there were negatives too. So what better way then to tell you about it and show you. Sorry about the video being …

Wow, it’s been a year to forget.

I last blogged on March 12, 2020. I completely forgot that I had posted at the beginning of the pandemic. Many of my family and friends have wondered where I’ve been since then. Well let me tell you that I feel like I’ve fallen down a black hole and landed upside-down in the “Twilight Zone” …

So, you’ve been put on quarantine.

Well, let’s hope not, but if you were… Watching the news and reading posts on Facebook about the coronavirus, it seems that toilet paper is the big item on everyone’s hoarder list, right after water and canned food, and it got me to thinking, is that really all we need? When there is a crisis, …

Fall Back!

Here in the United States most of us turn our clocks back an hour in the fall. Get an extra hour of sleep, they say. Yeah, right! How many of you enjoyed that extra hour of sleep? Go ahead and chime in. Raise your hands. Admit it, you opened your eyes and looked at the …

Faith, Effort, Persistence

I don’t know what I was reading yesterday. It might have been one of my horoscopes, but these three words came up; Faith, Effort, and Persistence. And they made perfect sense to me. It doesn’t matter what we are going through in life or if we are struggling with problems, or maybe we are just …

How do you blog?

I know it has been some time since I last posted a new blog post. My cousin Pam has been emailing me asking if I am okay. So for everyone out there, I am alive and still kicking. (And right now I am cursing the wind. I hate the wind.) We did have a beautiful …

Help! I’ve Got Fleas!

Not me actually, but my dogs do. And I’ve tried just about everything except… My son called me last night and I told him my dogs have fleas and he told me, “So get rid of them.” “What, the dogs? Okay, I’ll send them down to you.” And he laughed. He’s probably tired of me …

Have you ever?

Googled your book, that is. My nephew asked me that question yesterday. Then he asked, “Would it show up on Google?” “It should.” I told him. “Okay, give me a title to one of your books.” And I told him, “Kiley’s Best Friend”  and this is what he found! https://www.walmart.com/ip/Kiley-s-Best-Friend/695212619 (The photo is mine, not …

Lets Cut Costs!

Okay, so I’ve decided to cut the cord. Actually, I cut it months ago. My phone, TV, and internet was up to $195.00 a month. That’s outrageous! So I canceled the TV and phone. Yeah, right. Like I can get by with no TV. Ha! I picked up a Roku and I got a free …
